More information regarding Apple’s new iPhone has come to light and the rumoured larger Retina display is just the beginning of the changes.
Poking around under the hood of iOS 6 (the OS is obviously designed for the new hardware so you can deconstruct the code to gain clues), 9to5Mac thinks that the new iPhone will be running on a variant of Apple's A5 chip.
More interestingly, it will have 1GB of RAM, which is double the amount found in the iPhone 4 and 4S.
Jumping back to the processor - which is based on an dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 - the new iPhone has a S5L8950X processor compared to a S5L8940X on the iPhone 4S and the S5L8945X found in the new iPad.
What this actually means, no one knows at the moment, but it seems that it could be a low power variant.
Of further interest is the new iPhone's graphic processing unit: the chip is identified as SGX543RC*. This compares to the PowerVR SGX543MP2 that currently powers the A5 chip used in iPhone 4S. The new iPad uses a quad-core version.
What's most interesting, however, is whether the new resolution and aspect ratio of the screen will pose a hurdle for game developers to overcome, and what implications it will have for running old games and apps.
We expect to find out more at WWDC, starting 11th June.
